Let’s Follow Each Other on Twitter, Shall We?

Daniel Scocco

After reading about it virtually on every single website on the web, a couple of weeks ago I decided to give Twitter a try. I must say that, contrary to what many people claim to, I did not get addicted to it.

It is certainly a useful and interesting application for some purposes, but so far I am using it with moderation. I log a couple of times during the day to check what other people are tweeting about. Once in a while I also post replies, links or ask questions.

I still don’t get some messages that people write, like: “Hello everyone, how are you doing?” or “Going to bed now, see ya.’

That being said usually there are some interesting thoughts floating around, and cool links as well. I’ve read somewhere that Twitter is a middle ground between blogs and instant messaging, and I think that the definition is not that off the mark.

Another point that I like about Twitter is the fact that it enables you to connect with virtually anyone else that is using the service. It is a pretty democratic environment (another day I exchanged messages with Guy Kawasaki, for instance).

Anyway, as the time passes I will try to get more active there. If you want to follow me here is my profile. If you are using Twitter make sure to leave your profile on the comments section as well, I will be glad to follow you and I am sure that other readers will too.

    yes, twitter takes some getting your head around. I mostly tweet the music I’m listening to – classical and early music – and people seem to follow me for that, which I didn’t expect. I’m at

    I mostly use it to type in quick and stupid stuff, but it generates some traffic if you set your blog up to create tweets with every new post.

  • Adam Pieniazek

    Just started twittering a few days ago, I’m keeping an open mind but with Pownce, AIM, RSS, email, etc it does seem like we’re reaching an information overload. Anyone else scared the internet’s gonna break any minute now?

    I’m also new to the tweeting. The best articles I’ve seen about using Twitter effectively revolve around microblogging – discussing something of substance, but in a very short way. I like that concept a lot – seems much less narcissistic and much more community-generating.

    Twitter can be addictive sometimes. I used to post anything I was doing but have quit doing that. Anyways here is mine.

  • Ben

    I have a twitter account (http://twitter.com/benevert) and I’m still trying to fiqure out what it is all about. Maybe I’m just too old and find that it takes too much time away from other things.

    Wish someone could tell me what the big thing is with Twitter because honestly, I find that it is really useless. Is it just a fad? Is it just a geek thing? What is it all about?

  • Nate

    Good to see you make the transition!

    I tend to tweet about what’s going on at Mashable, random stuff, and have my blog set to auto-tweet each time I publish a new post.

  • Keith

    Following you like a stalker.

  • Char Reed

    Unfortunately for me, it turned into a MySpace stalk fest and people whom I didn’t want to associate with found me on there and added me, making me immediately close my account. I guess if you don’t have internet stalkers, then it’s alright, but I never used it before I ended up closing my account anyway.

  • Eric Atkins

    I’m in. I write about web dev, software, gaming, and my travels.

    I just got started on twitter and I use it mostly to share interesting articles from other blogs, promote my blog and share random ideas I pick up but don’t want to do a full post on

  • Kate Carillo

    Agreed – I am making a very conscious effort to give Twitter a try, but I have not felt addicted in the least. It’s a difficult balance trying to figure out the line of being active v. being annoying is…

    Looking forward to following you Tweets. 🙂
